, but first we're going to bring with campaign carl cameron who's live in greenville, north carolina, not far from here. carl? >> reporter: hi, megyn. a couple hundred miles away and very much focused on what's happening with the democratic national convention. today the republican running mate paul ryan will be having an event near greenville. we're in the middle of the introductions now, and you can expect him to immediately go after democrats and the obama administration for their inability over the weekend to answer with a straight yes or no the question of whether you're better off now than you were four years ago. it was the democratic mayor of maryland, martin o'malley, who said now, and then this morning top aides came forward and said, well, absolutely things are better. republicans are going to say it's clearly an example of democrats not knowing where the economy is, and republicans will argue that democrats are out of touch. there is a poll out now by the associated press that suggests that by a better than 2 to 1 margin most americans think they are about where they were four yea
carl cameron continues tonight's reporting on the big question of this campaign. >> in greenville, north carolina, more than 200-miles from the democratic national convention in charlotte, paul ryan led the g.o.p. attempt to counter program against the democrats. >> there is a little gathering going on in charlotte. you heard about this? the president will say a lot of things and he will but he can't tell you that you are better off. >> reporter: they had an attack video with the president recycling the pledges he made four years ago. >> americans are out of work. we have friends out there, family looking for work. >> reporter: in michigan, vice president used labor day to rip in republicans as disinterested in working class. >> they blame you as the problem. >> reporter: the claim that americans are better off four years ago has republicans crowing how out of touch the democrats are. the latest "associated press" poll indicates by more than two to one people say the financial situation has not improved or is worse than four years ago. 36% say worse. 36% say same. 28% say better.
ryan is leading the charge against the president it would appear, carl? >> that's right, shep. republicans are making good their pledge to make this the most aggressive counter argument that's ever happened at a convention. they do site he had planned to be in florida at the republic national convention though they were interrupted by isaac. marco rubio, nikki haley, the governor of south carolina, governor of oklahoma as well. ryan gave what was more the most part a standard stump speech signal the question for the week for are you better off now as you were four years ago reagan made famous. here is paul ryan's 2012 rendition. >> every president since the great depression who asked americans to send them into a second term could say you are better off today than you were four years ago except for jimmy carter and for president barack obama. [cheers] the republic national committee will hold daily news conferences, daily attack ads. new commercials from the dnc as well. steady stream of republicans across north carolina and particularly at charlotte all meant to act as what t
. [applause] >> good afternoon. my name is carl. i want to talk for a moment about the principles of levity, which has been associated with rules of levity, and they apply to ambiguities in the record. one of the things that we see in this case is a great deal of ambiguity. what i would like to submit to you is that official misconduct must be divided into two principles and one overarching nexus. if you look at whether mr. mirkarimi was in office at the time, perhaps you that some ambiguity about that. if you look at whether there was misconduct, perhaps there was some ambiguity about that as well. and did you try to find a nexus, i think he will find a glaring ambiguity. principles of levity should apply to these ambiguities in the record. >> thank you. thank you for the comments of the public. i think that -- oh, there are still people. >> i'm sorry, commissioner. there are more people out there. >> how many more are out there? roughly 30 more? i think we should continue. let's continue. please. >> goodlp afternoon. my name is kathy black. i and the executive director of la casa de los m
advisor to president george w. bush, and carl, great to have you. i'm going to turn to this press conference, a pop in, impromptu press conference, is this the president just acknowledging the reality the fact that he was getting hammered, skinny, but tough, but not tough enough to take on the press corps. >> it's a check the box, i've been criticized for not showing up. i'll show up take four questions, 22 minutes and blow out of there and look, the white house press corps seems to be suffered from stockholm syndrome, and would you like to announce the republican in candidate from missouri for being extremist and use that to tarnish your opponent, how is that for an opening question, mr. president. how many months did he fail to answer the questions to the white house press corps? and you know, the cbs reporter, i have to admit, tough. nobody followed up. the president says we've never falled mitt romney a felon. and not only stephanie was noted in the package. but bob power, former obama campaign repeated the charges less than five weeks ago does the president have a short memor

state as well. ed henry is with the president in toledo today. we start with carl cameron in greenville, north carolina with congressman paul ryan. hey, carl. >> reporter: a couple of hundred miles away on the outskirts of the big party in charlotte paul ryan is basically trying to crash it from a distance today. he is campaigning in north carolina opposites the dnc convention where you guys are. mitt romney will take a few days after. he'll resume his campaigning behind closed doors where he'll do debate prep tuesday, wednesday and thursday. he's leaving the convention to democrats and paul ryan this week. the question, are you better o now than you were four years ago is what the republicans are going to do as a bracketing exercise along the state over the democratic convention hearing. over and over and over again the question was asked, and the obama campaign's top aides were accused of not answering the question yes or no. >> david, can you honestly say that the average american is better off today than they were four years ago? >> here is what i can say, chris. i can say that we a
to talk to me. and his name is carl marble, and he had some wonderful stories. you'll see in the book his role in the crossing the line ceremony, it's an ancient native custom about crossing the equator. he was cast as the royal princess for king neptune's royal court -- [laughter] because, and get this, he said, i was 19 years old, and i had the best legs of anybody aboard the ship. [laughter] some of the -- thank you. some of the other folks who gave me what they call a deck plate look at the operation included barney barnhill who, sadly, is no longer with us, but he was the 19-year-old bugler who sounded general quarters and sent enterprise to war on the morning of december 7, 1941. and when i talked to barney, he said, you know, i still have the bugle, and i wonder what i should do with it. well, i hope that it's gone to a suitable museum where it can be placed on display. another one of my excellent contacts was bill norberg back in north carolina. bill's a very impress e individual. -- impressive individual. he took to heart his advice from a succession of the ship's captains and we
was the meeting of american cross roads, 70 multimillionaires and billionaires in there with carl rove. that was the actual republican convention, because if they win this election, it will be because they just blew obama out in terms of money. so that's the main thing that they are worried about and that's why they send out all these requests and e-mails that are irritating, but they work for obama, because people understand that this president is going to get outspent, which is a highly unusual, even unprecedented thing in american history. the other thing they are worried about is voter suppression. in 2011 a lot of states passed laws to make it effectively harder for democrats to vote. some have been overturned, but there's still problems in pennsylvania and other states. so they need an even bigger get out the vote operation, more party unity, to overcome these barriers that have been put in the way of mostly democrats who don't have the right kind of photo i.d. not just you need a photo i.d. that's kind of a misconception. the way the republican legislature set it up, you have to
boston globe." he is here to discuss his latest book, "buckley." please join me in welcoming carl bogus. [applause] >> thank you very much. good evening. pleasure to talk to you today about william f. buckley, and maybe most speakers don't begin by telling you their political affiliation, but i think that that's important and necessary. i have to be a liberal, and i know i'm speaking about a conservative icon, and the figure who is beloved by millions of people. so i think it's important that i confess my apostasy first to i happen to admire buckley tremendously, and many, many ways, but i also disagree with many of his ideas and that may come through. but i wanted to be up front with you about that. historians debate whether history is made by individuals or by structural forces. if george washington happened to have lived, or james madison, or abraham lincoln, would united states exist? if it did exist would be the same country we know to be? what other people have, thought, fill the shoes and done what they did, or would things be markedly different? for our purposes tonight, the que
